A GRAFT-LESS Approach to Implant Dentistry

Description:
Vertical bone augmentation techniques are more invasive and success rates often vary according to the surgical expertise of the clinician. There has been a trend over time towards minimally invasive treatment options in implant dentistry. This approach attempts to avoid more complicated procedures involving bone augmentation for implant placement. In the posterior maxilla and mandible, the use of short implants (< 8.0 mm) can reduce the need for vertical bone grafting. Patients often prefer this strategy over more complex procedures that can cause complications, increase morbidity and require greater treatment length with higher costs. When inadequate available bone is present for implant placement, planned bone augmentation procedures may be performed for the purpose of placing short implants. The use of less demanding augmentation techniques that are less invasive and more predictable. This presentation discusses a “graft less” treatment philosophy that emphasizes the use of less demanding augmentation techniques for the purpose of placing short implants in atrophic posterior sites.

Excellent presentation!!

Perhaps one of the very best lectures on modern day more minimally invasive perspectives on bone regeneration in implant dentistry I have ever witnessed!!! Dr. Salama

Dr. Misch never disappoints. Everytime I watch one of his lectures I find hours and hours of articles to read. Highly recommend for the citations alone.

Managing Large Odontogenic Cysts; Decompression or Marsupialization Technique Part 2 of 2
Decompression and marsupialization are techniques used to reduce size of large odontogenic jaw cysts, hence making its complete removal and bone regeneration simpler, safer, and more predictable. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a simple technique for decompression or marsupialization and provides a brief review of its application in management of odontogenic cysts

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration Premium Member Content

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration
The IDR (Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration) technique has been used for over 6 years. With it, we can reconstruct socket tissue losses in the same surgical session of dental extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, minimizing the treatment time and morbidity of the procedures. In this presentation we discuss the hard and soft tissues stability when the IDR technique is applied in different types of periodontal biotypes and in sites with different defect levels. The clinical, radiographic and tomographic follow-up of some cases is shown, allowing us to evaluate the maintenance of gingival architecture and peri-implant bone stability around the implants.

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of autologous intraoral onlay bone grafting (OBG) in correlation with long-term survival rates of dental implants placed in the augmented bone. A retrospective study was conducted on 214 patients who received a total of 633 dental implants placed in 224 autologous intraoral block OBG augmentations, combined with Bio-Oss – mixed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and covered by platelet-poor plasma (PPP) – as scaffold, with a follow-up time up to 137 months. We suggest that augmentation of severely atrophied jaw bone through the placement of horizontal and/or vertical intraoral OBGs in combination with Bio-Oss saturated with PRP and covered by PPP should be considered a reliable, safe, and very effective surgical technique for obtaining high bone graft survival rate and high long-term implant survival rate.
